April 2010 BOTM Winner rosebud!

Congrats rosebud!



I picked up this 06 vulcan a little over a year ago, and been tweekin, and printin in my spare time.


Mods: quite a few, lets see. PCIII fully mapped after each mod. Cobra longs w/o baffels, removed cross over chamber (Much better sound), and fabbed inverted cones to get some back pressure back (Lots of trial and error). Intake polished, and little something extra to induct air that I'll keep secret for now. LOL Still looks stock. Thinking about going back to baggers, so I can drop another 1.5 inches.

Initial paint and graphics, but still working on it. A little chrome here and there. I dress it up and down depending on the ride. Cruising around town, or the open road. I use this bike for the iron butt rides.

Current working on bat wing (w/ electronics) and custom lower fairing w/ scoop. (Again back to more induction. What can I say "torque , and speed junkie.") Then she's getting fresh paint and graphics (air brush this time).

Future: Little more chrome, LED's. Then probably on to the next project.

Nice ride, is that green? I really can't tell, unless you tell me, then I'll swear is orange if you say so.

Nope. Black. A really deep black. Lots of clear, polishes up really nice.

Too all, thanks for the votes.

Moto Mez, nice chop. I'm in S'port a lot. Grew up there. Ride with my pops (he's still there). Maybe I'll see ya there.

Must've been the fluorescent lights at work. On my home computer it does look black. If you say so. I like a paint job with lots of clear. Heavy clear is what makes the Mercedes look so great. Some of the better clear coats look like they are at least ¼" thick
